The AWARDS FootholdConnect feature, located in the Home screen's left-hand menu bar, enables users with the proper authority to post agency announcements. Once posted, users with access to the FootholdConnect feature can view those agency announcements, as well as any announcements posted by Foothold Technology (for example, those regarding new feature deployments).
The FootholdConnect feature is available to all AWARDS users with employee logins. It is visible on the left-hand menu bar when there is at least one active announcement available for viewing, and/or when the user has the authority to post/edit announcements. Permissions required to post/edit announcements are as follows:
NOTE: Permissions are assigned using the Permissions Maintenance feature. If you do not have access to that feature and need the permission listed here, please contact your supervisor or your local Help Desk for assistance.
Posting an Announcement - Post an announcement from start to finish.
Editing an Announcement - Change the settings of an announcement, its content, or attachments.
Deleting / Disabling an Announcement - Remove an out of date or unneeded announcement.
Viewing an Announcement - Open announcements posted by Foothold or agency/continuum staff.
